My Husband and I stayed here with my young daughter and Guide Dog, we had numerous issues even booking a room and only persevered as my parents had been staying there the night before and we had agreed to meet up with them for lunch. I initially tried to book over the telephone through the holiday Inn booking line and... More

Once an aristocratic icon, known across the civilised world for quality, it now stands forlorn and unloved as part of a "franchise". There are three main areas of concern. They are the staff, the beds and the lighting. Like the wifi signal, the staff are poor even by Holiday Inn standards, being uninterested and, often, just absent. The beds are... More

Arrived, late evening after booking this hotel online through the hotels own website to be told that their computer system allows them to over book rooms by 2. Long and short of it all rooms gone and no room for me!!! Not what you want to hear after a 4 hour drive. When booking the website said only 4 rooms... More

This is a nice hotel but the parking situation is absolutely disgraceful and the primary reason why I am giving this hotel a low rating. It would appear that the hotel have contracted Parking Eye to administer fines to people using the car park who are not guests. Unfortunately, and I see this has happened to others, the company have... More

Firstly I would like to apologise for the parking fine you received while staying in the hotel, it is not the intention of the hotel to cause any distress to our guests. I can fully appreciate that although the hotel did get the fine cancelled the parking company do have a waiting period of 6 weeks. I do hope this... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Read the other reviews that complained of being incorrectly fined by Parking Eye for parking in the hotel carpark, and thought "That won't happen to me, they're bound to have sorted this out by now". How naive!! Though the hotel receptionist took the car registration details at check in, Parking Eye sent a fine of... More

We stayed in the hotel for four nights up to the last Bank Holiday Monday. We had a double room which was clean and well maintained. Scotch Corner in itself is a bit barren, but Richmond is lovely and only 10 minutes away, and the hotel has a lovely restaurant and very good fitness centre with warm pool, sauna and... More

Having driven past this hotel many times over the last 30 years, I have only just recently stayed over. I always thought the building looked very austere and off putting from the road. How wrong I was. We stayed as a group of 5 for a nearby wedding. Everything about our stay was excellent. The quality of the rooms, the... More

My previous experience of this hotel was pre 2011 when it was known as the Scotch Corner Hotel. Every floorboard creaked, but we still enjoyed it. When we had a stopover 0n the way to Grange 0ver Sands, we could not believe it was the same hotel. It has had a makeover with no expense spared. A thoroughly modern look... More
